The book: “A Practitioner’s Guide to the Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent” , authored by Paul England is scheduled to be published by Bloomsbury in November 2022
From the blurb:
“A Practitioner’s Guide to the Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent provides practical and detailed advice on all aspects of the system for those using it.
“The book explains how the UPC system works in the context of the wider European patent system, including the UK, and how parties can use it to enforce or revoke European patents and the Unitary Patent, in particular:
– The procedures of the UPC from initiating proceedings to appeal, damages and costs hearings;
– Rules on competence, substantive law, jurisdiction, language and judges;
– The operation of the system alongside the national courts of the contracting countries, the European Patent Office opposition and appeal procedure, and parallel English Patents Court proceedings.
“The book is written for private practitioners and in-house counsel by a team of patent experts with many years of experience in patent litigation in France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK. It provides insights from national approaches to the features above and gives answers to common problems.”
